i'm generally not a big fan of the contemporary stuff that comes out of hatch show print. most of it is slammed together by folks with no sense of typography or design and lean strictly on the look of letterpress and that name "hatch" to carry it through.
but, THIS is a great poster. the fact that it comes out of hatch really turns my crank. i'm going to start paying better attention to them for a while.
all you dumshits who were jumping all over csa in such complete ignorance owe chuck an apology the next time you steal from him. you should really bone up on your background before you jump in with all your self-righteous vilification.
of course you can. he won't go after a little guy. and the work was "public domain" if you paid for the right by buying the original clip book - which you didn't, i imagine.
chuck seeks out the originator and buys the rights or he re-draws. (if you go back and lay one image on top of the other, you might be surprised, by he way.)
so, it's obviously impossible to protect. but, then if you steal from his book, you never know which is his drawing, which is copyright free and which is copyrighted by some other deep pocket that he got right to use it from. it's your risk.
so, why steal from his book? can't find it anywhere else? or just lazy?
it's full of bombs to protect himself from corporate ripoffs. that's all. he doesn't fuck with little guys like us - unless we're doing a poster for old navy or something.
